tax on payroll cost for work performed in the city. small businesses with less than 250,000 dollars in payroll costs are exempt from the tax. proposition e would create a new city business tax based on gross receipts rather than payroll costs. under the new system, the tax on payroll cost would be eliminated or reduced. businesses with gross receipts of less than 1 million dollars annually will be exempt from the gross receipts tax. the gross receipts tax rate would vary depending on the type of business and its annual gross receipts from its activity in the city. certain businesses that have their headquarters or administrative offices in san francisco that operate primarily in other locations would pay the gross receipts tax based on payroll costs. proposition e would require the city to phase in the gross receipts tax and phase out the tax on payroll costs over a 5 year period beginning in 2014. if the gross receipts tax revenue exceeds the revenue the city would have received under the tax on the payroll costs, then the tax on the payroll costs will be phased out and the fina
you later on in the show and tonight's vice presidential debate, the tax discussion will be a key issue, the so-called $5 trillion tax cut for rich people. now, take a listen to former senator alan simpson in an exclusive interview only on cnbc today. >> you have a situation where grover norquist has obtained this pledge in the '80s, in the early '90s, he got this pledge that you wouldn't raise taxes under any circumstances unless they are commensurate with spending cuts and those guys are enthralled to him. >> best way to take that on is to reform the tax code, to broaden the base and simplify the code, to wipe out these tax expenditures and use that money to reduce rates. >> well, all right. lo looks like bowles supports the grover norquist idea which is the romney idea. sounds like simpson, as usual, is being very crotchety. let's get to the two guests to get to the hoe-down. dean baker from the center for economic and policy research and the aforementioned grover norquist, president of americans for tax freedom. first of all, grover, what is alan simpson talking about? >> well
and the board of supervisors. we've all come together to tax reform, on housing, on fixing our parks and open space. we've got this year coming together in unprecedented way to put these issues on the ballot before the voters and make sure it's the right time for all of us to be smart, to make long-term investments in housing and in parks and it is time to do tax reform. together we're putting people back to work, building our city at the same time and now the tax structure has to be addressed. a lot of people keep asking me, what is this tax reform? it's kind of complicated. and i tell them it's about real people, real businesses and real jobs. because it is now that we're the only city in the state of california that's got a payroll tax. we're still taxing job creation, opposite of what we've all wanted to do many if not most of you have complained for years, why are we doing this to ourselves? well, i'm happy to report that we're long last at reforming our business tax structure. we're going to stop taxing jobs and we're going to help companies large and small start here, stay here and
proposition a is a temporary 8-year, $79 parcel tax on properties in san francisco. and that money would go directly to supporting city college of san francisco. city college is the largest work force training center in san francisco. we train students. we also help students learn english as a second language and then of course one of our primary missions is to help students, particularly low income and underserved students, move on to 4 year institutions. we serve nearly 100,000 students in san francisco and are a tremendous resource, we think, for san francisco. the last couple years the state budget cuts we faced, $53 million in the last 3 years alone, have really made it a challenge for us to keep our doors open for san francisco students and this proposition a would make a tremendous difference in addressing our fiscal problems right now. >> understood. thank you. starchild, can you present some of the thoughts around the opposition? >> sure. we all believe in people getting an education and having those opportunities be affordable and accessible to them, but city college's financ
's about taxes and what is going to happen next year with taxes? the enormous regulatory burden coming out of washington. people don't know how much it's going to cost to have that new employee that they might hire with the health care health care bill or the epa regulations. all of those things that bavarian certainty that's in the marketplace. there was just a survey that came out and said that 67% of small businesses today are not hiring because they don't know what to expect next year. and that is why we have got to have taxes to have some certainty as far as what the regulatory burden is going to be and then we can unleash this economy. we will give people the confidence to hire, to grow their business and to invest and that really is the biggest issue today for small business people certainly and really all businesses. >> moderator: i'm going to stop either congressman and kevin asked to what is the most important and i'm going to ask you what's the worst thing that congress can do right now as it tries to drive economic growth? latham: it's a tossup between increased taxes but i rea
. and the administration's mixed messages. then there are the gaffes. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: they may give ryan fodder, analyst note the vice president performs better when the speaking time is limited. >> in debates; particularly, against sarah palin four years ago he was disciplined. i don't think -- i think the republicans will be unwise to count on a biden gaffe. >> reporter: fox learned that the vice president was all over the place in his first debate prep session. that's why david axelrod and other top obama aides took over the debate prep. bottom line, a little rusty after four years of not debating. i'm told by the top democrats he did at least six intensive debate prep sessions. they are confident he is ready tonight, bret. >> bret: okay, ed. thank you. the presidential candidates are taking something of a backseat to their running mate today. and getting ready for their own rematch next week. chief political correspondent carl cameron has that story. >> hello, miami! [ applause ] >> president a rayed suppor --
people are fat cats we need to tax them more and so oi don't think that this is a constructive relationship, i think you see that when a go i like steve wynn -- a guy like steve wynn finally had enough and erupts, steve wynn is a democrat he voted for barack obama and had close ties. so i think you see this as a equal opportunity, not a republican issue not a democrat issue but a frustration in the be community. neil: i think you hit the nail on the head. that it is a frustration on part of the business community, we have seen it coming out of likes of brokerage firms, ratio of almost 5 to 1 giving to mitt romney rather than guy they were drown to 4 years ago barack obama. we're seeing it evan high-tech executives, intel ceo saying that policies don't help us, so this seems to be spreading like like a wildfire, but mr. wynn's comes so north worthy he was not afraid to go out on the limb and be so publicly blunt about it, do you expect others to follow? >> it is difficult for others to do, that but privately you hear a lot of concern nation over this -- concern nation. neil: why
, wind down pay off the debt so the tax increment in the series is available for distribution to the taxing entities, city, county, bart, schools. free up the taxes generated for distribution to the other entities. in the case of san francisco we do have a lot at stake. a number of these area plans which the commission approved the board approved as i indicated, made or approved, hunters point, mission bay, trans bay, another obligations that need to be implemented, they are in many cases 30 year plants. mission bay, hald done. trans way, just getting started, going for the terminal, housing production, infrastructure needed along folsom, is getting started, 700 acres still left to be done over the course of 20-30 years. what 1483 did, because it is a separate legal entity, apart from the city and county of san francisco, acknowledged that the surviving obligations and successor agencies in fact are not part of the city and county of san francisco is adopted on february 1. on june 27, when the governor signed that bill into law, so-called clean-up, we had to revisit the
the truth about mitt romney's tax plan. president obama and harvey rosen the professor is here tonight to set the record and in the president straight. welcome to "the willis report." gerri: hello, everybody, tonight, we began with the with the supreme court where nations justices take on one of the hottest issues out there. abigail fisher and university of texas for rejecting her for ing white. joining me now, the former federal prosecutor and kelly stand on, a constitutional law attorney. welcome to you both. fred, i'm going to start with you. you might tink that the court should rule in favor of the university of texas, which is fighting to keep these racial preferences. why is that? >> well, i'm not advocating one decision or another. if you look at supreme court questioning going back to 2000 and three race can be a factor in determining admission. in this case, i thinkfor the university of texas, the majority of the students at the university of texas at intercampus if they are in the top 10% of their graduating class because of the way that the schools are set up. that leads to
on the table and they all signed a pledge for grover norquist. they will do anything for tax breaks for millionaires and oil companies and whole host of breaks for corporations. we will not solve this problem until tea party republicans can come to the table. guest: the democrats will only come to the table if they figure out someone to tax. the fact is, they have to budget. obama -- it's amazing to me that we have a president put a budget up here and got zero votes. we stepped up to the plate and put a solution to the problem. i would love to see the solutions that the democrat have. host: let me get in one more race. one of the top race that people are watching and that's utah fourth district. again from this political blog from the san francisco chronical. you say jim is at risk only democratic in congress to lose because of mitt romney's coat tails. guest: this is the most republican district in the country with the democrat representing it. his name and representation and job approval is rock solid. host: who is mia love? guest: fantastic candidate. small town mayor. doin
that they are not going to cut taxes in way that willed a to the deficit, and i'll bet they are also claim that they are not going to raise taxes on the middle class, but they'll give the middle class a tax break. all of those lies we have heard before. and obamacare is a big government program. i don't think joe can be too aggressive. he doesn't have to be obnoxious. that's not his style anyhow. but he has to take on every single one of those. the other thing i think is is important for joe biden, i believe, that he has got to remember, that this is not for him. nobody is going to vote for him or paul ryan. if you are going to vote for just joe biden or paul ryan. if you want to vote for paul ryan and joe biden, you can't do that. it's not about paul or joe, it's about barack obama and mitt romney. and joe biden has to keep bringing it back to the fundamental choices. move forward with obama or move backward with mitt romney. i think joe has to make that point over and over and over again. and then i think it is important for us to realize that in the past there have
to actually have them in treatment rather than costing the tax payers thousands of dollars. so we have to save the seniors the services that they need and we have to be willing to make hard reform. >> now we come to the candidate' closing statements if you are not registered to vote, please do so right away and urge your friends and family to register stao. the deadline is october 22nd. if you have moved you need to register again with the new address, if you have changed your name you need to register again with the new name. all right. so we will do the closing statements in reverse, alphabetical order and please remember that you have tr two minutes >> thank you for organizing our decision and thank you for showing up. >> i am running because we don't need people in sacramento to talk about fixing our problems we need people who know how to fix it. i took over a broke assess or's office and reformed it and made it more efficient and because of that we were able to bring in $3 million of additional revenue without raising taxes people talk about clean jobs but we did something here in san f
. maf of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rarates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'mitt romney, and i approve this message. take away his toys and he'll play with a stick. take away their bikes and they'll still find a way to get where they're going. but if take you away early childhood education... slash k-12 funding... and cut college aid for middle class families ... they won't g go far. yet that's exactly what mitt romney wants to do... ...to pay for a $250,000 tax break for multi-millionaires. if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> you are watching abc 7 news at 6, on your side. >> a firsthand look at the labor issues plaguing american airlines. >> we were at reagan national this morning where pilots were picketing. they're pushing to secure new contracts. it is the latest issue plaguing the airlines on
-- raise everybody's taxes. he took it -- he looked right into the land and says i'm going to raise your taxes. he has had a lot of experience in that and he is going to go ahead and do it. but remember the statement from london johnson when he was looking around at why his party people weren't supporting him. -- lyndon johnson. he said they paid their tails white and ran with the envelopes. there are a lot of democratic tales running with the antelopes. not one single democrat has introduced the mondale tax bill into the congress. of course i support the president's economic program and i support him and everything else. i'm not sure because of my concept of the vice presidency that if i didn't i would go doing what mr. mondale has done with jimmy carter -- jump away from it. i could not do that to ronald reagan now, next year, or any other time. i have too much trust in him, too much friendship for him, and i would feel very uncomfortable doing it. >> some republicans have criticized mr. mondale for saying he disagreed privately with jimmy carter's decision to impose a grain embargo. h
, it would have put construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. mr. brown? >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the
starved for cash for the past ten years as a result of tax cuts the state could not afford that the prior governor put on the credit cards. we need to provide significantly more funding not only through k-12 education which is the birth right of every child to be able to get a quality public education in my opinion and to be able to pursue the dream of a higher education and that is getting further and further out of the reach of children in california because the state does not support education. we need funding, we need to spend it on education. >> so, therefore, do you think that community colleges should perhaps change their focus? one idea is to focus on retraining unemployed workers and upgrading skills for new jobs. do you feel that the state should encourage this? and how? >> if you are making reference to the challenges facing the san francisco community college at this time, i think that there are going to be some very painful and although, necessary, redirection of focus. we have been providing a lot of classes, non-credit classes and classes that don't need to further training
of comfort with voters. the obama campaign guns in. plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns. they take a baseball bat in beat romney's brains in in the six or seven swing states. that is why his numbers were upside down. why they did that i do not know. i have been asking that question since june. it was a huge miscalculation. the romney campaign family intervention try to introduce him -- this is what they should have done back in may or june. >> mrs. romney and the oldest son of mitt romney went to the father and said to have to change things. >> for a long time, the family had wanted to take the charlie cook approach. chris wallace alluded to the fact that their big bet from the beginning was that all you had to be was not obama. that turned out to be wrong. we can see in the different channels that they are doing now. you have to be yourself in addition to not being obama. >> let me explain. a lot of you do not know who stuart stevens is. he is a republican strategist from mississippi. he was a hollywood writer. he used to write "northern exposure." he has written a coup
today with the threat of higher interest rates and a losing a dollar and much higher tax rates. we know that we are giving the students here at this academy, our children and grandchildren, a lower standard of living. we've never done that in this country before. host: vice-presidential candidate paul ryan in new hampshire at a recent event. here's what you might hear from the vice-president joe biden at tonight's debate. this is from a recent campaign stop in florida. [video clip] >> there is no quit in america, folks. ladies and gentlemen, that's why i know i'm not the only one who was offended to hear governor romney write off nearly half the country is in his statement about 47% of the people being dependent. if you read the book congressman ryan has written with two other leading young members of the republican party, they talk about -- the title of the book is "young guns," and they talk about this culture of dependency in america without acknowledging that all those people -- of the 47%, 82% to pay federal taxes, the remaining 10% are seniors on social security who don't have to
, one that we're very proud of is the midmarket payroll tax initiatives. that is to make san francisco much more attracttive to entrepreneurial companies and renovate a blighted area. we're particularly proud of this kind of public-private partnership to move the city forward. now join me in welcoming the city's first asian american mayor and i'm very proud to say a member of the lee tribe, the 43rd mayor of san francisco, ed lee. (applause). >> thank you, judy, very much for that introduction. good morning, everyone. >> good morning. >> it's great to be here at the san francisco chamber and of course the center for economic development here, your breakfast for 2012, it's my pleasure to be here. i walked in as ed from wells fargo was talking and i just wanted to make sure you knew, i am eternally grateful it the chamber, to wells fargo for helping me create 5,200 jobs for our kids. that's a wonderful accomplishment. i've been your mayor for almost two years now and everybody is coming up to me and asking, are you enjoying it? you know, some of the politics in the city it's hard to
was on television a couple weeks ago and he was asked to explain governor romney's tax plan and he said, well, i don't have enough time to explain it. it's too complicated to explain it. well, he has 90 minutes tonight, so hopefully he'll have enough time to explain it. >> you read some of these reports, joe biden has been studying paul ryan's tax plan so hard, he may know it better than paul ryan. but are they right about what joe biden needs to do tonight? >> yoe biden as you said redemption in the lead, i like that word. he really has to shift the momentum of the race and make obama's people feel better. there was almost a suicidal tendency among democrats for a couple of days. it doesn't help you in the campaign. but i think there are two things biden has going for him, one, he really is a good debater. i went back and looked at stuff on the 2007/2008 debates and i wrote a column back then where biden beat all of them. and i led my column with the sentence does joe biden have to set himself on fire to get any attention. he's got the attention tonight. but the second thing he's got going for him
of specifics about eliminateing various deductions or loopholes or whatever you said that your tax cuts would be revenue neutral. you wouldn't add to the deficit. let's go through how you would do that. >> romney ryan campaign we're very excited about all the details of our new tax plan. it's thick with arithmetic, math, and the sorts of things we haven't had time to walk the american people through. so let's do that right now and just take a hard look at these numbers. [ screaming ] >> what i want to do is make it simpler, fairer. i want to encourage the economy to grow again. >> so you're repealing obama-care but keeping the good parts of healthcare, social security and medicare for seniors and you're going to build more submarines and destroyers than the pentagon wants, i want to ask you a question. are you a wizard. >> i'm not going to layout a piece of legislation here. >> we can't wait to walk you through all the details math point by math point. there are some tricky--sasquatch tricky--sasquatch. sasquatch, you come here! you come here, no, no, yeti. >> hi there, it's a trolley. it's
, of course, from the tax base and it's all connected and --. >> that's right. >> the tax is $79 per household. can you talk about that and how that would be an impact in your view? it's an 8-year tax. it's a finite tax. >> well, you know they say the only things permanent are death and taxes. once a new tax is implemented we often find even though it's called temporary when it gets passed, it ends up bking permanent or longer term than was discussed. i would love for my colleague here to tell us that she won't support extending that tax beyond the 8 years if it were to pass, but i believe that there's other ways that city college can stay afloat and continue to serve a declining student population. they might close some of the new campuses they've opened recently and consolidate facilities. >> thank you. do you want to offer comments to starchild's opposition? >> i think the, one of the primary things we need to remember is that city college of san francisco, which is an institution that san francisco really counts on, i think, for both our economy and for all of the community, has been
this issue you have trillions of dollars at stake here. all the bush tax rates that expire. all the sequestration cuts that automatically kick in, at the same stroke of midnight that is automatic. that is going to happen unless it is a lame-duck session or commitment on part of reelected president or newly elected one to fashion a plan that would deal with this. i hope it comes up tonight. i think it should because it is a far more pressing and immediate concern. you and i know, following the markets if it looks like they're punting or not serious about this, in fact inviting a fiscal cliff, pushing themselves and us off it, they're could be hell to pay in the markets to say nothing of our dollar and on and on. melissa: neil, thank you so much. big cheese, big kahuna. i will be watching as you host fox business. >> melissa, i read a prompter. i read a prompter. melissa: come on, no you don't. you don't even have a prompter. people don't know that. you make it all up as you go along every single night. >> there you go. that says volumes. thank you, melissa. melissa: we'll be watc
. i would say americanness the way. as the well, but does know the way. more efficient tax system would've created much more certainty and a whole bunch of policy. i still think it's doable. the leaders need to say we're going to do it. >> when you think of the outlines of something like simpson/bowles for sure and has to include something is entitlement reform, spending control, tax increases? >> most businesspeople are not partisan, not parochial. we can all spend 20% of the government. i think simpson/bowles is 21%. and none have an system. so simpson/bowles is a far more efficient tax system that gets this huge waste, fiction costs in our society, legal system, uncertainty. so yeah, we would have had better growth and simpson/bowles was four for one or whatever, close enough it would've been good enough. if you get the growth going again, gross people out. >> let's talk about gross. the united states has been out for several years growing at roughly half which you might call the modern historical rate and set up in mid-30s, we are courageous below to give her a tape. if you ar

policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. [ female announcer ] he says... president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? . >>> it's been a turbulent few weeks for american airlines, thanks to flight cancellations and delays. and today, the all eyed pilot's association is -- and represents 10,000 pilots. they expect a fair contract. >> we took big cuts back in 9/11 to

(cheers and applause) this is incredible! we get to keep all our stuff and pay less too? this is like those special potato chips that they made with olestra that had all the flavor -- (laughter) but none of the calories and, of course, every now and again there was a hint -- a skosh of age leakage but it's fine. (laughter) you know, you'd be in a meeting and your ass would do a spit take but -- (laughter) but the point is this. they were delicious. (laughter) what red blooded american wouldn't trade flavor for occasional ass-juice? (laughter) the point is -- by the way, i am just going to assume they are not a sponsor. (laughter) i don't -- that's a phone call i don't think i would want to take. romney, what are you cutting? anything? >> obamacare ads trillions to our deficits and to our national debt. i will repeal obamacare. >> jon: all right. that's something. and while the statement "obamacare adds trillions to our deficit and to o
, ryan gets into a contentious interview. >> you do that with a big tax cuts. >> those are your words not mine. >> thank you very much sir. >> yes. >> that was kind of strange. >> cenk: now i'll break that down and tell you the strategy that they have for these debates. it's really interesting. then later one mom from a navy seal gets tired of mitt romney talking about his son and she puts an end to it. >> imagine how shocked i was to learn that he was one of the two navy--former navy seals killed in (vo) always outspoken, now unleashed. joy behar. >> on my next show, rain pryor talks about having having a go go dancer mom, richard pryor for a dad, and a madame for great grandmother. hello, paging dr. freud. tell them it's like being nestled in an eight-way, adjustable, heated and ventilated seat surrounded by a 500-watt sound system while floating on a suspension made of billowy clouds. or you could just hand them your keys. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> cenk: the republicans on fox news channel have this strategy that they do before a
means receives will go. is also said that is going to be able to tax loopholes. i'm not a tax expert, but it seems to me that there's an awful lot of those loopholes, and that will help. and again when we're only talking about essentially 1.4% of% of the entire problem, it se a doable doing to fix. you can't fix it in one year. you can fix in four years for sure. so at least i try to answer your question. now, i can't just sit back and listen to some of the stuff and be told in effect well, facts matter but you, dov, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out to see. look at the pattern of naval spending, and the number of ships over the next few years. the ai
had when he ran years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. i will restore the vitality that gets america working again. up next, look at the findings of a new public opinion poll in the american attitude towards muslims and arabs. the polls conducted filing recent violent protests in the arab world that erupted in a film than a gritting islam. our al arabiya news channel was part of this 90 minute event hosted by the brookings institution. >> thanks for coming out on a somewhat dreary fall morning for an event that in many ways is more prodigiously timed today than it was when we planned it, because today that was when we planned it because primitive to candidate governor mitt romney is giving a major foreign policy address earlier today just to the south of casa addressing many of the middle east policy questions that we will be discussing over the course of the day. and i hope that we will be able to take a look at what the public opinion data may rev
it. krystal, when you look at his record, it seems right for pickings. his budget raises taxes on the poor. it makes seniors pay $6400 more for medicare coverage, all while giving millionaires a $265,000 tax break. meanwhile, he voted for defense cuts he blames on president obama and mr. fiscal conservative voted to increase the debt ceiling by $4 trillion under president bush. seems like right pickens to me, krystal. >> frankly, he can't be directly honest about the plans because they are toxic. it is not popular to fund tax cuts for the rich on the backs of the poor. that is not something that sells in this election. on the other hand, biden and obama have been very consistent and their policies are broadly popular. they are talking about restoring the middle class. they are talking about the american dream. they have a balanced plan that makes sense to americans. so i think it is very tough for paul ryan. not only does he have to defend his own budget but mitt romney's plans and he has to be able to reconcile the differences between what mitt romney has been selling and what
that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but really, mitt romney officially thinks that he did. they have done this over and over and over and over again, on big issues like health reform, on small issues like whether he met a guy or not. and it is a ridiculous technique. i mean, think about what this means for the long run. i mean, the romney campaign is training the country to not believe this guy when he is talking. they're training the country to feel that, you know, wherever you hear mitt romney saying something today, don't worry, it doesn't really matter. it is all subject to revision later. long-term, this is a weird technique. it has been a strange political technique from the get-go this year. but mostly, it has worked for them. them correcting
francisco, as they have done in numerous occasions, voted in a tax, an adadd vel orm tax, a property tx for the purpose of maintaining a symphony orchestra. that tax now generates $2 million annually. we think that that's wise. look at what happened to the san francisco symphony. it's world-reimpound. renowned. it has done everything that it was intended to be. however we uncovered a contract between the san francisco arts commission and the san francisco symphony, which is a four year contract starting in 2010, running through 2014, in which the san francisco arts commission gives the san francisco symphony $2 million. the san francisco symphony, however, gives back to the arts commission, 40% of that, or $800,000. there are no restrictions on the use of that money, and there is no requirement or actual experience in the last number of years, for the san francisco arts commission to use that money to maintain a symphony orchestra. a clear violation of the intent of the charter. the $2 million tax and the giveback are in the same piece of paper. so one cannot say that they were not mean
out, yesterday, here come the black helicopters. it is about the united nations imposing taxes on the united states, through a treaty with the obama administration. that's the move that i think is coming up in november and december. i want to alert people to it. >> greta: well, they're now alerted. thank you, dick. coming up, casino developer steve wynn is boiling mad at president obama and it's all caught on tape. he is taking the president to the wood shed. here from him next. and president obama had a horrible debate. but that is not stopping him from giving vice-president joe biden advice for his debate tomorrow night. hear the president's advice to the vice-president, coming up.

every day. >> if i was paris, the whole conversation was about carbon taxes and what's really going to happen. what do you expect will happen? >> i think in this country the likelihood of a carbon tax anytime soon is not there. >> we'll wait for china and india. >> clearly over the next five years or possibly ten years there will be no appetite here for that, but given what -- i'm telling you, the view is a complete -- >> their energy policy is primarily a climate policy. >> you don't even need -- it's not co2, andrew, we'll know within five years. >> some people say it doesn't work. >> i have six chapters on that subject in "the quest." so i think dealing with carbon, the carbon has gone up. >> 400 parts per million. >> that's right. >> that means there's 9.9 -- 999,999.99999999 carbon dioxide. chill. it's eight-tenths. >> i'm chilling. i'm just telling you. >> that's the problem, we're not chilling, we're heating. >> dan thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> we have to put this on our bookshelf so we need a signed copy. >> let me just say thank you, i'm honored to have this a
president obama said in the first presidential debate with mitt romney. the $5 trillion tax cut. they take issue with that figure. and so, i think the fact checkers more than busy tonight, brooke. >> jim acosta, see you next hour. >>> i want to talk about this debate tonight. usually the vice presidential debate gets limited attention. historically to game changer but that's not the deal tonight. after president obama's we'll call it less than stellar performance last week, joe biden is front and center facing pressure tonight. how's the rival congressman paul ryan preparing? ryan lugs around this ratty old briefcase. this is what i was talking about earlier. stuffed with 40 pounds of debate study material. you saw dana bash. this is what -- little show and tell part of the exclusive interview that dana scored and already in danville, kentucky, as well, where the debate as we mentioned is hours away. dana, all right. so you got this -- he has a huge briefcase. so i presume what he's saying there with all the study material is he's prepared. >> reporter: yes. he says that that's what he say
results in a new poll about proposition 30. governor brown's plan to raise taxes to pay for public safety and education. surveyusa asked that question two different ways. first, simple question: how certain are you to vote to raise taxes? the majority 38% said no. but when prop 30 was explained in detail the results were different. the majority said that they would vote to raise the sales tax temporarily by a quarter percent. and raise the income tax on those earning more than $250,000 a year. >>> thousands of californians are getting hit with a new fee to pay for fire prevention services. as cbs 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts explains, what you have to pay depends on where you live. >>> reporter: >> this is a bill i got from the state of california for extra fire fees. >> reporter: the bill came last month and it caught barry by surprise. >> i didn't know what it was. i thought it was a scam. >> reporter: it wasn't. barry is one of more than 800,000 california homeowners who live in state responsibility areas highlighted in red here. they are now receiving bills averaging $150 to
is severely anti-choice. and what he's doing here, whether it's on choice, on pre-existing conditions, on tax cuts for the rich, is all a deception designed to trick people into voting against themselves. >> so, terry, it seems like mitt romney will do the bidding of the fundamentalists like tony perkins if he becomes president? >> i think he will, but i think it's his own bidding too. i think it was important of you to show that clip of him bullying during the debate in 2002. that is the way he is with women. the stories that have emerged out of massachusetts, where he tried to bully a woman who was -- whose pregnancy was actually threatening her life. she had -- she and her husband had gotten permission from the mormon church elders to terminate this life-threatening abortion. he went in and tried to intimidate her into not terminating this -- that pregnancy. that is the way he is with women. and he -- so my sense of him is that he will lie without conscious, because it's the same thing, as intimidating and bullying. it's manipulation, it's just doing whatever he wants to do in order to get
not have the will. a more efficient tax system, more certainty. i think we would have been booming. it's doable, but we need the leaders saying we're going to do it. >> when you think of something like simpson-bowles, do you think it needs spending reform, tax increases? >> we can all sit here. i think it is 21% and then you have an efficient tax system. it is a far more efficient tax system so it gets this huge waste, this coefficient cost, not a bad tax system, a legal system, uncertainty. you would have had better growth. i'd think it was four to one, or whatever it was, but close enough would have been good enough. it does not have to be exactly right. once. starting a down, it would pay for a lot. >> the united states has been now growing at roughly half of what you might call the modern historic rate of economic growth. we're growing in fiscal 2002, give or take. if you were advising the next president, be it obama or romney, to say publicly here are the few things we should do in order to generate economic growth, one would obviously be some kind of comprehensive budget deal, bu
romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? when president obama couldn't. first, my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. take away his toys and he'll toplay with a stick.ew jobs. take away their bikes and they'll still find a way to get where they're going. but if take you away early childhood education... slash k-12 funding... and cut college aid for middle class families ... they won't go far. yet that's exactly what mitt romney wants to do... ...to pay for a
